Honey Water Mycelium Using Peice Of PF Cake (Colonized)
    #2279298 - 01/28/04 12:22 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I recently created a honey water solution and added a chunk of colonized pf cake to spawn mycelium in the mixture. I havent seen this variation of the honey water tek before and had some questions.

Heres my procedure to date with results and questions at the end:

Pressure Cooked 1/2 pint jar containing water, tablespoon of honey (non-organic)and a glass shard for 25 minutes. Once cooled, I added a chuck of colonized cake using oven tek, and placed the jar in a tupperware container with heating pad.

After 4 days, the chuck (3/4" dia.) of pf cake which is floating inside the jar on the surface, has a 1/8 inch of new mycelium growth around it. I then shook the jar to break up the mycelium with the glass shard.

Questions:

1. Organic honey is recommended in the honey water tek. Will any type of honey work?

2. Is it necessary to use a chuck of cake or can I just use a small strand of mycelium.

3. How long should I allow the mycelium to grow in the solution. Its hard to tell how much mycelium has grown in the solution since theres a lot of floating debris (BRF, Verm).

4. Where is the best place to store the solution.

Thanks,
